Brookfield applies for brownfield remediation assessment grant

As Brookfield works on the Four Corners revitalization project, the town is looking to find out how much chemical contamination there is under a former dry cleaners at 20 Station Road.  A grant will allow Brookfield to assess the property and determine what needs to be done to get it in saleable or useable condition.  First Selectman Steve Dunn says there is a bloom they believe is going out under Station Road.  The assessment will determine what's there, the level that's there and the extent of what's there.


While on the Sewer Commission, Selectman Marty Flynn says they would get projects where contractors were digging and found that the ground water was so polluted with gasoline it was flammable.  He asked if this grant singles out the one property, or if it could be used to look under the gas stations in the Four Corners as well.


Dunn says the gas stations have been under remediation for the last 20 years.  It's gotten to the point where Department of Economic and Community Development allowed for the remediation building to be removed.  That's where they could check the water and filter it.  Dunn says they are in good shape.


Dunn noted that the town is not doing remediation, just an assessment.  He says that will help the property owner, the town and future development.
